Have you done any high speed corrugations ?
Mine did 1500km with no troubles, but the rubbers failed very quickly after that
Ryan is a good bloke, I really hope he can get this product 100%, I will definitely be a repeat customer if he can

Longest stretch was 3 hours above 100 on tar. I really don't work the bike much so hope it lasts better for me. Am watching it closely after your experience!

Tar doesn't seem to be an issue, seems high speed corrugations on dirt roads are what causes the most hammering on the sprocket

I might be putting this 41 for sale. I need a 45 or 50 but they were out. I don't feel like taking links out of the chain- but at a glance it looks like that will be what's required to make it fit. I'm geared 15/50 and it's close to perfect for me but I think a 15/45 would be better.

I wonder if they are going to make more?

15/45 is a fair jump from 15/50. But you could run 14/45 if you like the original gearing. I'm on 15/45 and it's okay for my riding.

I had to take it to the DMV today to get it tagged and bagged (which I did- WooHoo!) and it just seemed the RPMs were a bit "up there" for around 50 mph. Of course I don't have any gauges so I am guessing. That's was my first ride outside the neighborhood and I thought it did pretty good. I worry about the 5th gear failure but I'm just not ready for the $1000 cush hub rim yet.

I run 14/47 which seems ideal for most of my riding round here, still ok in the bush but able to sit on 110 - 115 km/hr on the road. On long open fast dirt road blasting 15 -45 is great, but a bit high for any single track or technical stuff

Gearing really depends on your intended riding. Some guys run 13/50 for almost Trials riding terrain. I'm 60 now so have no interest in super technical trails so loping down the fast trails with 15/45 works for me now. The Kush may just last me fine!

I run 13 -50 for Enduro type use ( tight and technical ) , I ran 14 -45 in the Victorian High Country in May and the gearing was great , when in Adventure mode locally , I run 15 -45 , that allows me to sit on 100 kph at about 5000 rpm , the engine feels real comfortable around that 90 - 110 zone with 15 -45 . I do tend to ride a bit faster than most others in adventure mode though , so the gearing I run fits in with that usage parameter .

Also a consideration is - I run a Barrett , full large bore exhaust system with my full Adv set up , this has a quite noticeable increase in torque over the std exhaust and muffler , so the meaty torque negates the higher gearing's tendency to feel a bit sluggish at lower revs .

Hey Will
I'm thinking this on the xr650L - did you have it on the 630? does it make a diferance when the rubbers go I wonder? It seems from what I'm reading it still works fine. For the price you pay for them if you can get 4000 k's well thats only a couple of k's less than I could get outa a standard on the 690. $1100 for a cush drive on the big girl
Baz
p.s I'm having some trouble with the website ?

Yes have had 2 on the 630 the first one 7500km.You can feel it when they go, it gets jerky rolling on and off.On the husky flooging out sprockets has got to be better than flogging out countershaft splines.

yep thats whats wrong with my 650 now - 7500 is good - you would just have to get used to knowing before big rides when its time to change beforehand like tyres I guess.
Are they still available though - website is not working at all ?
